Sweet Potato muffins!
Very Good 4.1/5
(12 ratings)

Heres a little recipe I worked out, and Sweet Potatoes are full of vitamin A! These sweet potato or yam muffins have less than 100 calories each and less than a half a gram of fat each! They come out to just under 1 gram of sugar each, but i use no sugar in them so these are naturally occuring. By the way no these are not "mini-muffins"! Feel free to use regular muffins tins like I did... They are a great harmless snack or breakfast addition. To get your vitamin A be sure to pair it with a healthy dietary fat (we need fat to absorb the A) - breakfast with 1 ounce of reduced fat cheese and a piece of fruit is great! So low cal you can mix and match often- and made with whole wheat flour- so you are getting your healthy whole grains and their awesome antioxidants! Enjoy!
*Don't be scared of the prep time- its just for boiling sweet potatoes. I forgot to add the temperature before but I included it now: 425 F. (its in the recipe text now too) Let them cool completely! Even chilled in the fridge helps them to "set".

We cut the grease and used reduced-fat string cheese to re-create a pub favorite.
